The Centre for International Legal Studies at OP Jindal Global Law School is conducting the International Law, Political Economy and Covid-19 series.
The second event of the series is a panel discussion on 'Can We Reimagine International Institutions? A Third World Perspective'.
Date: 25th July 2020
Time: 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM
This panel discussion is based on the idea that, as Covid-19 has exposed already existing fault-lines and structural divides within the mainstream model of international governance, there is a definite need to think about reimagining international institutions that not only are responsive to the blind-spots of the current framework but also are based on a wider and more inclusive set of concerns.
Taking inspiration from this observation, this panel discussion aims at having a critical debate on the following related questions:
- Are interests of Global South represented adequately in the responses to Covid-19;
- How International legal principles and institutions operate to create/develop the existing visions of global solidarity;
- What would be important considerations while making a roadmap for considerable reforms in the overall framework of international governance?
- Dr. Bhupinder S Chimni, Distinguish Professor of International Law, Jindal Global Law School;
- Dr. Titilayo Adebola, Lecturer, School of Law, University of Aberdeen;
- Mr. K. M. Gopakumar, Legal Advisor & Senior Researcher, Third World Network;
- Mr. Sachin Sathyarajan, Lecturer, Jindal Global Law School and
- Mr. Ishupal Singh Kang, Lecturer, Jindal Global Law School.
